On-demand device support startup Fixt announced $6.5 million in Series A funding, and plans to grow its Fells Point–based team.

Investors in the Series A round included San Francisco-based Precursor VenturesNaples Technology Ventures and Asterisk Ventures.

“As an industry, we’re just scratching the surface of how powerful on-demand tech support can be when it’s combined with the massive scale offered by a global technician ecosystem,” Fixt founder and CEO Luke Cooper said in a statement. “This financial support and domain expertise will help us execute our vision even more rapidly and broadly – and with the benefit of experience, perspective and relationships of a leading strategic investor in the mobility space.”

Fixt offers a platform that connects companies and organizations on-demand services to set up, repair or replace devices. The company currently has 20 employees, and is looking to hire in engineering and sales. To complete work on the devices, Fixt draws on a network of 2,500 professionals.

The company has been growing over the last year, and recently added U.S. Cellular, Applied Materials, Home Depot and NYPD as customers. It sees additional opportunity in 5G installation and support for connected devices.

“Their offering is very well-timed with the rapidly increasing demand for solutions that extend the life of our users’ broken devices while driving meaningful cost reduction and business continuity for our 42,000 employees and their mission-critical work,” Richard Lacey, IT Manager of Mechanicsburg, Pa.–based rehabilitation hospital network Select Medical, said in a statement.
